Chronicles of Nonsense&Fishing(Blog)

Thanks Gave

I haven't fished in a long time. A baby is much more needy (and gratifying) than a fish, although those fish need to be looked after as well, I hear the current administration is proposing legislation to make rivers containing water illegal and eligible for deportation. A familiar sensation is returning to my mind but only during the night time hours - rowing, casting, holding(fish). In one week Captain Staph and I will return to a place where his obsession began, mine was exacerbated, and our bond was really  formed. All of those years ago we really didn't know how much this lifestyle...

Rebirth

The website has been resurrected and although I think the current readership is hovering around .0135 ppl/month, I decided it was worth it to dig through the stacks of internet oblivion to rescue it from the jaws of irrelevance. With that, I present to you a picture of John Mayer playing guitar with The Dead. More fish related things coming soon, maybe.

A Year of Incredible

I have a tendency to get retrospective at the end of a calendar year as many of us do. This year I cant help but sit here and think, wow.

Make no mistake , this is what I want to be doing. Here in this moment watching the sun illuminate the sky that was previously cloaked in headlight impenetrable darkness, casting a line in a spey style to fish that are unknown to the majority of anglers in the country, assuredly this is where I want to be. Now that the method and repetition have become common, I feel more comfortable than I ever have while doing this . I know that success...

P for P

We all need to stop.  Remember when we all made videos soundtracked by “The Intro” by The Xx?  It felt like we couldn’t help ourselves but we all know where it ended.  I am pretty sure the last person to post a FF video featuring that song was stripped of all his/her terminal tackle by Moldy Chum.  And now we stand on the brink of another similarly dire situation. I’m not even going to say it; I’ll refer to it as “P for P” as to not contribute further to the heinous overuse of the phrase.  We all get it, smallmouth are hardy fighters and are not large.  I understand the desire...
